    The Debian packages specified in this article was incomplete; I was getting a “module not found: ctypes” when trying to install Python 3.7.3 on MX Linux 18.2 – Continuum.


    $ sudo apt-get install libffi-dev

    The full syntax on pyenv website:

    $ sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install -y make build-essential libssl-dev zlib1g-dev libbz2-dev libreadline-dev libsqlite3-dev wget curl llvm libncurses5-dev xz-utils tk-dev libxml2-dev libxmlsec1-dev libffi-dev liblzma-dev

    Installed 3.6.8, but really wanted it’s pip3. pip --version and pip3 --version both give same result:

    pip 18.1 from /home/searles/.pyenv/versions/3.6.8/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pip (python 3.6)

    so left wondering if it’s correct.

    Then finally, wanted to ‘python3.6 -m pip3 install typing‘ – but that gives “No module named pip3” !

    Awesome install guide for pyenv. In my humble opinion – just the perfect level of detail and context along with the install commands. Many thanks!

    There is a typo in the command at 5th step. It should be “pyenv install -l” instead of “pynev install -l“.

    piton, is nice if you like to do some things, but I prefer Qt and C++, that might just be the reason for my concern is on the ethics of it, after all…

    by, live long and prosper…..

    You might want to add libffi-dev as one of the required package for installing Python 3.7.
